Cinnamon Raisin Granola / Cereal

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites


Who doesn’t appreciate a hearty granola cereal for breakfast!?  This one is packed full of flavor and nutrition.  To be honest it tasted just as good before I dehydrated it.  I could have eaten a bowl of it then!  You can really customize this recipe as well by adding any of your favorite dried fruits to it. It would taste wonderful with fresh sliced bananas on top as well.  Here I am serving it with fresh almond milk that I had just made.


Ingredients: yield 4-5 cups

  • 4 cups gluten-free rolled oats, soaked
  • 4 cup organic apple, chopped(3 medium apples)
  • 3/4 cup raw cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup raw agave nectar  (if desired, use only 1/4 cup sweetener plus stevia, to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup raisins (melody mix is pretty)
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Pulse diced apples in food processor till they are chunky.
  2. Add nut butter, sweeteners, and coconut oil. Blend till well mixed but too much where it becomes a puree.
  3. Hand stir oats, cinnamon and salt together.  This will help to coat the oats in the cinnamon, distributing the flavor.
  4. Mix together oats, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.
  5. Pour the contents from the food processor over the dry ingredients and stir until oats are well covered.
  6. Spread mixture evenly onto nonstick teflex dehydrator sheets. Mixture should be no more than 1/2-inch thick, the thinner you spread the mixture the quicker it will dry.
  7. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 8-10 hrs.
  8. If kept well-sealed, this will keep fresh for 2 weeks.

      Hello Miliany,

      I can’t remember if I did on this recipe. I always try to and suggest for you to, but I do realize that it can be tricky finding them. I have to order them, I have yet to ever find them in a store. I love cereals too! I hope you try some out here. Have a wonderful weekend! amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue

    I love Your site and your spirit !
    I made this recipe and it’s been 24 hours dehydrating and it is still not as dried and crunchy as I would like. I used wet oats after soaking . Should I have used dried oats? Maybe the coconut oil will solidify when it cools and it Will be crunchier.

      Thank Christi! I appreciate your kind words. I would take it out and let it cool, often times it will crisp up at that point. I hope you enjoy it! amie sue

    You were right , Amie-sue ,it did crisp after it cooled. It’s delicious ! Thanks again.

    • amie-sue says:

      Awesome Christi. I had a feeling it would. Some dehydrated stuff can be like that. Enjoy and have a blessed weekend! amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue! Love, love, love your site and creative ideas! Completely beautiful and yummy. I discovered your site by mistake and have been thankful for it ever since. I would say I visit it daily as you have COMPLETELY opened my eyes to a whole world of food I knew nothing about…raw food! I cannot wait to make this cereal. Quick question: can I use raw almond butter as a substitute for cashew butter in this recipe? Thank you, Audrey

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Audrey,

      I am so glad that you stumbled upon my site and find great enjoyment within it. :) I share my passion, hoping it becomes infectious.

      To answer your question on the nut butter… you are usually always safe to exchange the almond and cashew butters. In this recipe, it is just fine. Keep me posted if you make it. Blessings, amie sue

        Amie Sue, thank you so much. I made it and it was delicious! I have to confess….I do not own a dehydrator (yet) and had to cook it in the oven on the lowest setting for about 6 1/2 hours. As this is all new to me, I’m hoping this still counts as healthy?? Thanks so much.

        • amie-sue says:

          Hello Audrey,

          Indeed it still counts as healthy. :) You made it with whole, best quality ingredients… that right there is a huge step in the right direction. It is a far greater choice that boxed cereals. Good job! Happy to hear you enjoyed it. Blessings Audrey and keep in touch. amie sue
